The domain "Les Calanques Bleues" (the blue streams) owes its name to its location on the Mediterranean coast. The best way to catch sight of it is by small boat. As you sail close to shore, you can watch it hug the coastline, glistening in the sun as it snakes around from terrasse to terrasse. The vineyards are all certified organic, in an ancestral way that preserves the soils and the environment even as it lets the sun and the sea spray caress the grapes and confer to them their unique flavour.

Made from a blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Syrah, this organic Provence rosé is the palest of pinks. The nose is refreshing and subtle with aromas of iodine, citrus and white-flesh fruit. The palette is elegantly structured with good acidity. It has a coolness and beautiful minerality with a long, satisfying finish and bags of staying power.

Provence, France

Provence is one of the oldest wine regions in France, with a history dating back over 2,600 years. The ancient Greeks were the first to introduce vine cultivation to the area in the 6th century BCE, and the Romans later expanded the region's viticulture.

Today, Provence is best known for its rosé wines, which account for over 80% of the region's wine production.

Syrah/Shiraz

A red grape variety that is widely planted around the world, particularly in southern France, South Africa and Australia. Typically wines are full-bodied and deeply coloured.

Generally called Syrah in the old world, or Shiraz in the new. It produces wines which are typically high in tannins and acidity, and can exhibit a range of flavors and aromas, including blackberry, black pepper, smoke, and leather.

Grenache / Garnacha

Found throughout northern Spain and southern France, there are three variants: Grenache Noir, Blanc and Gris. 

Grenache Noir is the most common. It is generally spicy, berry-flavored and soft on the palate. Complex and intense notes of blackcurrants, black cherries, black olives, coffee, gingerbread, honey, leather, black pepper, tar, spices, and roasted nuts can also be found.

Cinsault

Cinsault is a fragrant and pretty grape. It can have lifted red berry aromas, like raspberry, strawberry and cherry, with floral violet notes. 

It is an important component of blends from Languedoc-Roussillon, the southern Rhône and even Châteauneuf-du-Pape. It adds freshness and fragrance to blends of Grenache, Mourvèdre and Carignan, and is also a major contributor to Provence rosé.
